Panel 20 - Big mouth: evidence & mediated justice in sexual violence claims

Convenors: Nomi Dave (University of Virginia), Bremen Donovan (University of Virginia)

Short abstract: This roundtable explores truth, justice, and the use of audio-visual technology in sexual assault cases. We will present work-in-progress on a film about a Guinean defamation suit against a feminist activist. We consider how audio-visual evidence generates public debates that shape legal outcomes.

Roundtable participants:

  • Adrienne Cohen (Colorado State University)
  • Carrie Rentschler (McGill University)
  • Jesse Weaver Shipley (Dartmouth College)

A live discussion with the contributors will take place on Zoom on Friday 26 March, 16:30 - 17:20 UTC. Find the roundtable abstract and a link to join the live discussion here.
